"We are excited to announce this astounding new franchise which portrays one of the most fascinating periods of time in American history," said Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games. "Red Dead Revolver is Rockstar Games' first foray into the wild west and the Rockstar production team is eager to deliver an engaging and visually stunning experience that pays homage to this era."
"With this game, we have pushed ourselves technically, stylistically and gameplay wise further than ever before," said Diego Angel, President of Rockstar San Diego. "We are aiming to make a western experience that sparks memories of the past as well as looks forward with an inventive new approach."
Red Dead Revolver is a fast-paced, arcade style, third-person shooter set to deliver the ultimate western experience on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. The action of Red Dead Revolver combines a multi layered storyline and breathtaking graphics that authentically recreate the look and feel of the classic 'spaghetti westerns' of yesteryear. After garnering strong industry buzz and a loyal following, Rockstar Games acquired this title from Capcom Co., Ltd. in 2003.
